Lets see, in mm, 8,10,12,13,14,17,19,36, 36 "special tool with 8" deep socket. The head
bolts needed to be deep socket for the two double nutted studs. So a basic set of sockets and a basic set of deep sockets, plus standard box/open end wrenches.
Most nuts/ bolts were 12,14 or 17 with a few small 10mm on the lift
I used a big adjustable crescent wrench for the big nuts on the engine
Feeler gauge to set valve lash and ring gap, etc.
Really does not take that many tools to rebuild
. If I rebuilt the head
I would have needed a spring compressor
, but those can be rented at auto places.
A 3" metal band type oil filter
wrench makes a great ring compressor
Needle nose plyers to remove the curclip holding the piston pin.
Chisel / scraper to remove old gasket
material on oil
pan,timing cover, etc.
Assorted screwdrivers including one big flat blade type to hold the flywheel, jamming a tooth at the flywheel cover, when breaking free the two crankshaft nuts. That's a two person job, btw.
That's about it or all I needed anyway.
A small block of wood to set the crank shaft oil seal
. Hammer of course.
